John Michael's CornerWelcome to the intersection of orthotics and prosthetics in cyberspace!
This month's Corner includes the second in a series of reports from the recent World Congress of the International Society for Prosthetics and Orthotics held in Glasgow, Scotland, highlighting upper limb prosthetics. Some intriguing headlines about the Managed Care industry are also discussed briefly. Additional chapters from the texts on lower limb prosthetics and orthotics that have been translated into Spanish are posted. This Corner concludes with a couple of new resources for Web education relevant to our field, and with the news that the Atlas of Limb Prosthetics will be both republished and revised!

This month's Corner includes the next installment of uploads of chapters from the entire Spanish language texts on Lower Limb Orthoses and Lower Limb Prostheses, for downloading or printing. CPO Services is very pleased to be able to post electronic versions of texts used in the former WHO school in the Dominican Republic, with the kind permission of Sidney Fishman, PhD.
